My younger brother just texted me. “Need some help. STD testing kit.” Really, I thought. In this day and age of access to all sorts of information, this is what you are texting me? While I was thinking how to compose a reply, he texted again: “Do you know where I can buy a std self test kit? Don’t want to go to the doctor if I really don’t have to.” He’s in panic mode, I decided. So I did a google search on my phone and found a great website offering std testing kits for use at home. You would get results in about 15 minutes and the accuracy for the test was between 95% to 97%. Purchasing seemed easy and shipping would be discreet. I texted back the website’s url, wished him good luck and to keep in touch. It was a bit unnerving, but I guess not unexpected. When you consider that according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are nearly 20 million cases in the US of new sexually transmitted infections yearly. And the percentage of the newly infected is 50% in the 15-24 year old age group which is the age of out of control hormones, thinking you are invincible, and taking stupid risks. To get my mind off of my brother, I then started reminiscing about my favorite songs when I was that age and I decided to share them with you.

** Update **
These are just some of my favorites. I remember growing up and hearing something & just loving it. I would do everything I could to get hold of my favorites & when I did, I played them all of the time. I could not hear them enough times. I would play them over & over again. My friends would often times hide my tapes & CD’s so they could get a break from hearing the song that I was on about at the time. Sometimes, I would “lose” the tape altogether but I have my doubts & believe that some of that music was not really lost but taken. Either way, I know that if you are not the same way about music you know someone who is & you have probably even thought about doing the same thing to them.
These are not the only favorites that I have but they are some of the goodies. If you have never heard these, I would seriously suggest you give them a try. They were my favorites for a reason & if you have already heard them or know them well you are familiar with what I am saying. If you have any suggestions for me I would love to hear from you I am always available to be contacted anytime through this site. I appreciate the feedback & look forward to the contact.
